Porsche CPO Paint condition pass/fail

Recommended Posts

I’m about to pull the trigger on a ‘13 CPO Cayenne Diesel. However, the front bumber and hood have quite a bit of bug marks on them that the dealer said they could not color sand and polish out. Could anyone advise as to whether or not this paint condition would still qualify as a pass to be CPO’d? Or do they have to abid to a higher Porsche corporate standard. I have attached a picture.

I've never seen "bug marks" that could not be cleaned up. Are you sure the dealer is diagnosing correctly? I've seen many things that can etch the paint over time and this may be what happened to this truck. You need a handheld or smartphone microscope to determine the defect and subsequent paint correction accurately. 

My 2012 S has lots of road rash for lack of a better term on the hood area. I use Meguiar's black wax to minimize visually.
